Learning from the Past

Saudi Arabia has plans to construct the world's tallest building. I mean after all, they paid to knock down our World Trad Center, time to have their own tower of power, right? This monster will clock in at about 5,250ft. Yes, that is just shy of one mile. This is almost double the heighth of the current record-contender, the Dubai Tower at 2600 ft.

"And they said: Come, let us make a city and a tower, the top whereof may reach to heaven: and let us make our name famous before we be scattered abroad into all lands. And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of Adam were building.

And he said: Behold, it is one people, and all have one tongue: and they have begun to do this, neither will they leave off from their designs, till they accomplish them in deed. Come ye, therefore, let us go down, and there confound their tongue, that they may not understand one another's speech. And so the Lord scattered them from that place into all lands, and they ceased to build the city. And therefore the name thereof was called Babel,"

When will they learn?
